    I am very new to blogging, never done anything like it so here goes.

    I started a blog then decided to create new one, and purchased a domain name FarCry3.me. Then stuffed everything up.

    Got confused between current blog and new domain name, now nothing seems to be in the same place and links are different, purchased another domain by accident, since cancelled.

    All I would like to do is start from scratch using the domain name I purchased ( FarCry3.me )and scrap everything else. I really need some help with this so thanks in advance.

    The blog I need help with is farcry3dotme1.com.

    What is the URL of the WordPress.com blog that you’d like me to move the domain to?

    If you have not yet registered one, you can do that by visiting https://signup.wordpress.com/signup/ while logged in.

    Whoops, I get confused between blogs names etc. Can I start a fresh blog I have no posts as yet just started trying to get layout and link properly.

    If we need to setup a new blog lets call it Acid Trial,

    Sure, just visit https://signup.wordpress.com/signup/ while logged in to create the new blog.

    When you have it, let me know the blog’s URL, and I’ll move your domain to it.

    Hi Mac Manx

    I have just created a new blog URL, acidsblog.wordpress.com

    1. Sorry I should have stated that the problem is when I type in http://www.farcry3.me it gives me the old I think ??

    2. What does ‘acidextreme’ represent ??

    Many thanks, I really do appreciate the Help

    1. I have moved http://farcry3.me/ to acidsblog.wordpress.com as requested.

    2. I’m not sure, I don’t see that on your account.

    You also registered farcry3dotme1.com as a domain name. Would you like me to cancel and refund that?

    Hi Mac Manx,

    Whoops #2 worries me, is it just a time issue, I really thought I had registered (acidsblog.wordpress.com) perhaps I am doing something wrong.

    Your last paragraph, I didn’t realise I had done but if so please cancel.
    Use the funds for the site if you can

    You did register acidsblog.wordpress.com and that’s what I moved to http://farcry3.me/

    What you had mentioned earlier was “What does ‘acidextreme’ represent?” not acidsblog.

    I have canceled and refunded the other domain as requested.

    Hi MacManx,

    Many thanks for your help, so now I can delete all blogs (actually there is only one FarCry3) that will leave me with Acids blog.

    I await your OK with bated breath.

    PS Where does (acidextreme) come into the picture or is it my register name

    acidextreme is just your username, it’s not a blog.

    You can now safely delete the undesired blog following this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/

    Thank you Macmanx, that is what I found a bit confusing, this is all a learning curve, actually a very new language.

    Again many thanks for your Help.

    However if you set the unneeded blogs to private you have practice sites – also if you delete a blog name it is gone forever even from you – most of us recommend that you don’t delete a blog because of the loss of the name – also many people have deleted the wrong blog when cleaning things up

    Hi Macmanx and AuxClass again my thanks I did read about the deleting blog and I haven’t deleted it.

    I think I will treat it as you suggest (private) and play with it for a few days.
